Tough call on these solo trips with the heavy ass bikes. As you said, sometimes your 'buddies' will be there with cameras and every intention of future blackmail. But they can sure help when you've got your bike upside down in a rocky drainage.
It's all fun though.
Thanks CM, yeah it was a good shakedown cruise and I would have paid cash money and endured any amount of blackmail to have someone helping me that unmentionable day in Death Valley.
But solo riding does have an appeal that revs my motor. There comes a certain clarity when you know that theres no one to help and no one to bitch to except the wind and rocks.......
